As lead body and an authority in Flower & Vibrational Essences, the BFVEA feel it important to have a reference document on essences which is available to the general public, particularly as some of what is presented on the internet currently is factually incorrect and misleading.  Therefore, the BFVEA has produced a short guide, which is presented in Q and A format and covers most topics generally associated with vibrational essences.  It is hoped that it will form the definitive guide for those seeking basic information on this subject.  Click here to download the free Guide to Flower & Vibrational Essences

The BFVEA has written and produced a Flower Essence Guide.  Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained within it is accurate.  Please feel free to print it for your personal use and to educate your clients or students.  However, we ask that you do not make any changes or use the content for personal gain.  The contents of this guide should not be published in any way or made available for download from any other source without the express permission of the BFVEA.

The BFVEA Guide to Flower and Vibrational Essences is appropriate for any newcomer to essences, providing a good introduction.  For those with some knowledge but wanting further detail on a certain aspect of essences, it is informative.  It is ideal for practitioners wishing to provide information about essences to their clients, or teachers in educating their students.

All about Bach remedies

There are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system. All of them were discovered in the 1920s and 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician and pathologist.

Each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion. Mimulus, for example, is the remedy for when we are anxious or afraid about something specific. Taking the remedy helps us overcome our fear and face it with courage.

Dr Bach designed his system to be simple. It may seem daunting at first, but anybody can learn how to use it, and on this site you will find all you need to get you started. Most remedies are sold in liquid form, and the idea is that you will mix together the remedies you need so that the mix of remedies matches your current emotional situation. Like Dr Bach, we believe that healing on an emotional level has knock-on effects on other levels: a healthy emotional life and a balanced personality will allow your body to find its own natural state of health.

Use the information here to look up every remedy and find out what it is for. We tell you how to select and take the remedies, and how they are made, and we have lots of recommendations for further reading if you want to know more. You can also learn a bit about the philosophy of simplicity that underpins the system and the work of the Bach Centre. 

If the remedies really work — and I, like many others, have experienced them working — there is real meaning in the way that a plant grows. The idea which instructs form cannot be based upon chance. There is, as Bach would say, a Grand Design behind the physical world of living beings. A grand design and a grand designer. This book is an attempt to represent aspects of that design at work."
